Is Kitters deaf? White cats with blue eyes almost always are, due to some genetic mutation. Just curious.
Nope, he's not deaf. We're nearly certain that he is at least half Turkish Van, which is one of the only breeds of white blue-eyed cats that doesn't carry the deafness trait.People at his vet's office always used to ask if he was deaf every time I brought him in. I'd tell them, "He can hear the rustle of a lunchmeat packet opening from across the apartment, so I'm guessing he's fine." ;)
LOL..OK now I'm hungry for cereal w/ marshmellows..thanks..
I voted for Mr. Kitters!
